HILLSDALE, N.J. – He was hardly discrete about it: A suspect picked up by a passing patrol officer near the Hillsdale train station was carrying a Walgreens shopping basket and $2,500 worth of stolen merchandise bulging from his pockets, police said.

Officer Travis Woods was headed to the shoplifting call when he spotted Mark P. Zurich, 32, of Jersey City carrying the hand basket – with several of the stolen items sticking out of his jacket, Detective Bill Diedtrich said Thursday.

Zurich was charged with shoplifting and sent to the Bergen County Jail before a judge released him a short time later pending a hearing.
